Christine Centenera is the Fashion Editor for Harper’s Bazaar Australia and Lara Bingle’s stylist.
Recently Christine has become the subject of many fashion and style blog thanks to her achingly cool style achievements. Showing up to local and international fashion events has created perfect photo-ops-made for catching this on-trend lady.
Christine is a leading head in fashion and we wouldn’t expect anything less than a strong developed sense of style. With a natural edge and soft, pretty features Christine remains approachable-looking.
She mixes and matches her wardrobe and isn’t afraid to wear things more than once.
I’ve found some of the top picks of Christine’s personally styled pieces to share.
Here is Christine supporting local Australian Designer and fellow Aussie Josh Goot.
This brilliant Spring 2009 dress is a psychedelic splash of fun and vibrancy.
Layered with a serious black jacket, scarf and gloves Christine smartens the look, toughening it further with those patent to-die-for YSL’s.
Again combining two different feels- laid-back battered denims and a white tee with a sharp statement Balmain Fall 2009 jacket.
The high-end jacket says luxury but the denim and tee oppose this giving a ‘just-thrown-together’ look. This has a great feel.
She sure know how to vamp it up, though.
Christine shows us how it’s done in amazing Gucci fall 2009 platform thigh-high boots. I love the mix of slouchy and body-con. It’s comfortable yet exudes cool.
Christine is lucky enough to have a stunning piece of Prada to flaunt and here she heightens the luxe feel of a sheer Chloe shirt with a Prada costume jewellery necklace.
Green gems are natural-looking and add attention-grabbing shine to her outfit.
Proving just how shiny and special they are to her, Christine’s YSL Tributes have made regular appearances accompanying all from dresses to jeans.
They sex-up a lot of what she wears and are flawless-looking giving Christine added height and dominance as a modern working woman.
Christine is apparently ‘a self-confessed sucker for anything with studs, metal detailing or patent leather. Perferably all three at once’.
I love the rock sensibility of her look and these Givenchy Fall 2009 beauties harden a soft grey marl dress worn by Christine during Paris Fashion Week.
These shoes show who’s in charge.
Keeping it simple but daring to be different with smart fashion-forward touches are the key to Christine’s look. Her recipe for successful dressing comprises of sticking to block colours that are comfortable whilst playing with layers.
And final ingredient; a killer heel.
